My First “Startup”  – Collectively

Like most young first time tech entrepreneurs, my two friends and I started an online dating website in Calgary.  We all had full time jobs and it was something we would work on during our free time.

After ~8 months, we decided to call it quits because we didn’t think it was a viable business. Growing an online dating company into a successful venture is extremely difficult and expensive.  Many of the challenges (e.g. city-by-city expansion, built in churn) we experienced are the same reasons why most funds avoid investing in the dating category.

My first experience with a startup was a failure, I made more mistakes than I could count, but I learned a lot throughout the process.

Here’s a look back at some of the work we did on our group dating company.
